Marathon Monk: February 2018 – 112 days & 672 mindful miles

Meadows Shrine

On Tuesday 6th February I passed the 100 walks mark when, if I was a real Japanese Marathon Monk, I would have asked formal permission to continue. I thought about marking the day in some special day but in the end it was just a normal walk. Perhaps I’ll do more of a celebration when I pass the thousand miles in early summer.

Wednesday 28th was my 53rd birthday and also the day that the “Beast from the East” weather system arrived. I decided to mark it with a photo of each of the shines on the way to work but missed St Andrews Square. Since then the snow has got a lot deeper. I’m looking forward to the walk today (1st March) with about 15cm of snow.
